Student Teacher and Intern Placement Information

Student Teacher and Intern placements are coordinated district-wide through the Human Resources Department. Universities and Colleges should contact the HR Department directly with requests.

A packet of information should be sent with each placement request on the eligible student teacher/intern. This packet should contain the following:

Once the packet of information is received, Human Resources will reach out to qualified Cooperating Teachers. Once a placement is found, the University/College will be notified. All student teachers should contact the Cooperating Teacher for an interview.

All student teachers must complete the requirements listed below. No placement shall begin if the proper paperwork and requirements are not completed and met.
